The new edition of the Anchor Bible Commentary on 1 Peter IS NOT the same as the previous edition. This is far more comprehensive, far more in depth. It is over 3 times the size of the last edition, but that does not necesarily make it an improvement. However the quality of the content is extraordinary. Elliot provides the best looks at 1 Peter that you will find anywhere. None of the other modern commentaries approaches its breadth of view. Nevertheless, depth of insight has not been sacrificed. Elliot provides fresh, new outlooks into this books of the New Testament. The only downside of the present edition is its daunting size, which may turn off some lesser-educated laity; but the content is no less accessible than any of the other books in the Anchor Bible series. This will be useful for pastors and laymen alike.

While the comments of the other reviewers are well taken, and probably right, we are in Elliott's debt for placing his massive learning in the social sciences at our disposal in this brilliant commentary. Elliott has long been known as one of the premier interpreters of 1 Peter and his erudition shows here. This is a massive commentary and well worth the time and effort spent reflecting on, working through, and thinking about what Elliott has written.

The Anchor Bible Commentaries are very scholarly studies that go into great depth both in their Introductions and in their discussion of the particular text. I Peter is an excellent volume. It certainly makes it easier to read if one has some grasp of New Testament Greek since it goes back to the original text constantly. Elliott gives attention to the different views on the book dealing especially with the questions as to Peter's authorship and reasons to believe it was penned by him or by someone as he presented the material orally.

Even when one disagrees with some of the interpretations and conclusions reached by Elliott, you never get the impression he is pushing his own agenda but that he is trying hard to see the text as it really is. I highly recommend The Anchor Bible as a whole and especially the volume on I Peter.
